  1. What is the story with this new copper based ammo then? just read it in't Shooting Times but also scoped it in that excellent sunday tabloid The News of the Screws and thought it was a Pi**take!!.

    Is this really because they are concerned about lead poisoning on the ranges if so god help all us old blokes.

    I've seen the reports that the bunny huggers are trying to stop it for normal shooting but call me old fashioned but a'int we supposed to kill her majesties enemies lead is bloody good at doing the job.

    WTF Is happening thank god im almost finished, it's getting out of hand!. :x
